Proudly presented for sale by LSY Sanctuary Cove & BBM Yacht Sales is the AMSA survey class Motor Sailor 60ft Crusader catamaran “PASSION” that is simply unparalleled in performance, & economy. 

This Australian designed, built and fitted out luxury ocean cruiser is an incredibly capable long range cruising catamaran that’s ideal for day charters, Whitsundays charters or even remote surfing charters throughout Indonesia. This vessel introduces a entirely new world of performance, economy, comfort and ultra-long range cruising ability – and although it is some 60’ LOA, it DOESN’T have (or need) two huge diesels, just a small pair of Yanmar 310hp provide economy & performance not seen in any other vessel. This is a fine example of thinking and planning for tomorrow, today.

Her layout is the ideal set up for a live aboard charter operator to do day charters & reclaim the formal lounge area forward on main deck & convert to a sizeable stateroom with ensuite,lounge & office. Presently its being used as a lounge area only and accomodations are located in the hulls both sides but you will see in the imagery the two bed side tables built in ready for a King-Size master bed. Depending on the intended use, the configuration can easily be altered to cater for a specific charter market or the ultimate husband/wife/couple to live onboard & casually do day charters or surfing charters by converting the two double cabins into 3 or 4 singles each, or as the ultimate base for a family escape & grand tour, the possibilities are enormous. 

This new hull design incorporates elliptical bulbs to improve the speed/power performance and significantly dampen the pitching motions. This same forcefield nearly perfectly cancels the bow divergent wave seen peeling off high-speed cruisers without bulbs. The wave resistance is the major absorber of horsepower, so the bulb optimisation was studied carefully. Two Yanmar 6LP 310HP diesel engines were installed, and gave an impressive maximum speed of 23 knots+ at maximum load, with almost nil bow wave. The diesels were installed with Yanmar V drive gearboxes to make the engine rooms easily accessed from the aft cockpit stairs for servicing, but mainly to achieve maximum cabin space in each demihull. The noise and vibrations being further aft were added bonuses. The aluminium hull was coated internally with primer and foam-coated for acoustic and thermal insulation. Closed cell foam was used to fill the bulbs and other hull and tunnel voids, totalling 13.5 cubic metres, making her theoretically unsinkable. The internal main deck area has a lounge forward for eight people. Aft of this is the galley to port and dining for eight to starboard. While many cruising yachts have the galley below the main deck, the Crusader designers have heeded the wishes of female cruisers that prefer to be in the centre of activity. The aft cockpit is the width of an 80’ monohull, and able to seat 12 to 14 adults. This has been enhanced by the closure of a starboard quarter access, and the vessel is geared for steering and berthing on the port side or stern only. While you may think dual-side access is important, ask yourself when you have come off or on an aeroplane on the starboard side? The steering position is on the flybridge port side, and the owner can easily berth port side to, or stern to, and having the propellors 5.3m apart. This makes the manoeuvring and berthing quite easy, even without a bow thruster, according to the owner. The starboard side has a low angle stairway with bow rollers to easily launch or recover a 4.2m dinghy or jetski, negating the need for an on-deck crane.
The accommodation has two double cabins in the hulls, with toilet/shower facilities. In the starboard hull is a navigation/plotting station and a fully equipped office with computers, router, printer and scanner for the owners to maintain contact with family or business. On the main deck is a forward lounge area with seating for eight. Aft of this is the galley on the port side, and adding a table for six to starboard. For the unusual motor sailor rigging, a New Zealand A-Frame design was selected with raked masts, and two forestays with roller furlers and a 60m2 sail on each side. The designer admits it is a lazy way of sailing. Many cruising sailing boats just use the jib and run the motor in idle to maintain batteries and the hot water. In trials with 20kt beam winds, the motor-only speed was lifted from 8 to 10.5 knots, with the weather sail at 20m2 and the lee sail at 40m2. Such an increase requiring engine power would use an extra 22 litres per hour. The vessel has four 470W solar panels, a 3500W Victron Quattro inverter and 500AH of battery storage, boosting the 5kw genset AC power when needed, such as preparing dinner. The Schenker watermaker provides 30 lts/hr at very low electrical consumption and time-switched for daylight operation when the solar system is providing good base load. In addition to this, the large plan area has a rainfall collection system. After three minutes of rainfall, when salt and dirt are washed off, the owner switches the Y valves diverting clean rainwater to the 800 litre tank. On the inaugural voyage from Gold Coast to Port Douglas, Passion achieved 11 lts/hr for a 10- knot speed northbound and 14lts/hr for 10kts southbound where there was next-to-no-available wind energy. This is unbeatable fuel consumption for a 60-ft spacious cruising vessel, and certainly makes long-distance cruising far more affordable. Oceanic Designs have completed the design of a 68-footer (21m) Crusader catamaran with four double cabins, again with an optional motorsailor rig for those people concerned about lowering the carbon footprint, without having to go for a full sailing catamaran. 

The vessel PASSION’s price is inclusive of GST (GST is claimable back for any commercial charter operator or as a “going concern” for any entity that meets ATO criteria for a purchase excluding GST)
